Finals week has reared its ugly head, which means no sleep and an endless amount of stress. Students camp out at the library and study for hours in order to prepare for their dreaded exams, but the library is preparing a surprise for students tomorrow.

Students will be able to play with puppies on the first floor of the library on April 25 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. because “finals can be ruff,” as the ad says.

These furry friends are no strangers to campus. The puppies are from Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit organization that provides people with disabilities service dogs for free. The organization usually comes during finals week to help students deal with their stress.

So, step away from your books and take a break. Go play with these adorable pups.

    I think that natural remedies are the way to manage stress. Tons of people have been able to minimize their medication (or get rid of it all together) with a natural product called EMPowerPlus. Its definitely worth looking into! Here’s their website if you wanna look into it
